Ford has already completed more than 1,000 deliveries as part of the initial phases of building up its self-driving business. Under the Wal-Mart-Postmates pilot, Ford will be using research vehicles designed to simulate an autonomous experience. These vehicles will be used to gather consumer preference and opinion toward how autonomous vehicles function, according to the Tech Crunch article.
